July 15, 2015

Or at least some mommy friends. Over the years, I’ve had a lot of questions via Twitter and e-mail about how to find new mom friends. How to start a conversation at the park, how to get people to not think you are crazy and how to find that parent (and kid) that you can just […]

Baby sleep…it gets better

January 9, 2015

I am going to blame SAD for the influx of traffic to my 4 month sleep regression post. It’s cold. It’s dark. New moms are stuck inside with babies who won’t nap. “WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, BABIES?! THIS IS PERFECT NAPPING WEATHER!” they scream…into a pillow…of tears. I get it. Hang in there. I […]

Hola, Kindergarten

September 30, 2014

We are now a few weeks into Kindergarten and getting our feet under us. It hasn’t been all rainbows and unicorns but I think we have weathered the transition pretty well.

September 15, 2014

Cinco

August 13, 2014

Lando, Yesterday you turned 5. Whoa. Just whoa. You are so awesome. You really are. For the few times you make me want to run from the house screaming, you redeem it with your loving spirit and comedic timing. You love Legos and hate to lose. You despise lemon on things and ask for plain Kale. […]

4 weeks until the big day comes. Landon is off to kindergarten and with that, a loss of homemade warm lunches each day. We’ve gotten lucky to have such a great daycare arrangement for 5 years.

Moving On

July 24, 2014

I don’t fear change. I actually feed off it. I am constantly making things to look forward to. The next trip. The next project. The next play date. It always varies in size and sometimes I do a whole lot of change at once. Last summer, I started getting that feeling like I needed a change. […]

Dad Can Do It

July 23, 2014

Time for some talk, ladies. More specifically, moms. I am seeing a good bit of dad doubting recently. I’m sure it isn’t more than usual but just circumstances are bringing it out of the woodwork. Leaving my kids for 4 days for my own agenda kinda set that in motion. Yup. I am happily boarded […]
